You’ll get to learn the basics of wood carving

Just opened not so long ago but this offbeat experience has gained massive popularity thanks to its uniqueness among the workshops in Ho Chi Minh. The workshop is a 100% hands-on activity where you’ll be guided by using wood-carving tools for creating a piece of your own. Participants can either choose to carve their own design, or to carve traditional Vietnamese patterns - the owners’ effort in combining the old and the new.
